Preventative Care

Preventative Care for Peoria Families

Peoria Healthy Smiles wants you and your family to have beautiful teeth and healthy bodies. Dental care is an essential part of your health. Healthy teeth and gums support healthy hearts and brains. They give you the beauty and confidence you need to succeed at work, at school, and in relationships.

How do our patients get such great smiles? It’s a combination of regular office visits, screenings for complex conditions, and great homecare habits.

Come and See Us at Our Peoria Office Every Six Months

Great smiles start with regular cleanings by our friendly hygiene team. Our patients see the best results when they come in for a cleaning at least twice a year. If you haven’t been in the office for a while, don’t worry. Our team is warm, welcoming, and non-judgemental. Our only goal is to help you get healthier and more confident.

At your preventative care appointment, we’ll carefully clean and polish your teeth. We’ll remove plaque from visible surfaces and from below the gums. We’ll also check to make sure that your gums are healthy and free of inflammation.

80% of Americans have gum disease, and 50% have severe gum disease. In our office, we’ll help you get those gums back to health, so you can avoid tooth loss, damage to your jaws, and irreversible gum injury.

At the end of the appointment, we’ll do a fluoride treatment so that your teeth are protected until your next visit.

Screenings Save Lives, and We Want to Save Yours

Did you know that your oral health impacts your whole-body health? Your mouth influences how you eat, how you breathe, how you talk, and even how you sleep. The Peoria Healthy Smiles team is committed to helping you achieve both oral and whole-body health.

To protect your health, we perform several annual screenings:

  • X-rays, to spot oral issues that might be invisible during an exam
  • Oral cancer screenings, to ensure that we can catch this disease before it progresses
  • Sleep-disordered breathing screenings, to ensure that you can get treatment for any conditions impacting your ability to sleep and heal at night

When we see you and your family regularly, we can help monitor your health. Peoria Healthy Smiles is proud to be a part of your family’s healthcare team.

Home Care is Preventative Dental Care Too

You’re an important partner to our office team. The care you do every day at home like brushing with fluoridated toothpaste, flossing, or eating healthy foods supports and improves your oral health. Are you having problems meeting your tooth care goals? Let us know! We can recommend tools and products that make it easier to take care of your family’s teeth on a busy schedule. We care about you and your family, and we want to help you keep your teeth and bodies healthy and strong.

Booking Appointments for New and Returning Patients

Whether you haven’t seen us before, haven’t had an appointment in a while, or are in our office every 6 months without fail, we’re glad to see you and happy to help you keep your teeth clean and healthy. Our office is close to the intersection of US 60 and State Road 101 in Peoria. Our office opens at 7 am Monday – Thursday, so you can fit your appointment in around work, school, and sports.
